Startup Rising: The Entrepreneurial Revolution Remaking the Middle East
When: Thursday, October 24, 6pm
Where: Weil Town Hall, Ground Floor, Belfer Building – HKS
Despite the world’s elation at the Arab Spring, shockingly little has changed politically in the Middle East; even frontliners Egypt and Tunisia continue to suffer repression, fixed elections, and bombings, while Syria descends into civil war. But in the midst of it all, a quieter revolution has begun to emerge, one that might ultimately do more to change the face of the region: entrepreneurship. The event will be followed by a book signing at7:30pm at the Harvard COOP, 1400 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, MA.
